Software test rig for construction equipment industry

HiL simulators for automated software testing | by Tobias Gilbert

Hydrive has developed a test rig that tests the functional safety of excavator controller software on behalf of a construction equipment manufacturer.

Prior to any software being released, the test rig will run through a series of pre-defined test cases at the touch of a button in order to ensure that the controller reacts correctly to electrical errors, sensor tolerances and driver operating errors. Fast, automated execution means that the test rig requires just a few hours to perform tests that previously took weeks on a machine.

Furthermore, the test rig offers the added benefit of increases in process safety and huge time savings thanks to the automated generation of test reports.
